Oh wow, is it cold during summer also?
The scenery was very beautiful as a winter landscape, there were so many different types of trees and places to hike.

I agree, it was their idea to do a serious themed shoot, and it seemed appropriate for the setting.
Good to put some history and meaning behind Hetalia cosplay. ^-^

Thank you very much~ it was fun to work on, but took a while to capture. Timing it to get the flag open and pole not obscuring the cosplay was difficult.

Ah yes, I'm glad someone got the title~!
